In Japan, you don't wear shoes in the house. Traditionally, from the front door, you come down a small hallway, where you have to leave your shoes on and then proceed to the main room of the apartment. This custom is all the more entrenched as there are still houses covered with tatami mats on which you really cannot wear shoes.
The Japanese relax in the house with bare feet, socks or slippers, they put on sneakers, shoes or sandals when they go outside.
Sandals have become very fashionable in recent years. They refer to a long tradition: sandals such as geta or zöri have been worn for centuries, because they are worn with the kimono.
But what to do in November, when the temperature in Tokyo drops below 10 ° C and stays around zero all winter? Sometimes, sitting at home, a person realizes that they need something, in a store or in a car, or that they just have to throw away trash in the garbage.
Putting on your winter shoes for five minutes is a bit tricky and gives you problems. And it would be uncomfortable to put your bare feet in your regular shoes.
Thinking about this type of situation, SUBÜ, the winter sandals, was created. Easy to put on, they cover your feet like a down duvet. They can be worn with or without a sock. Thanks to a 4-layer sole that adapts to the shape of your feet, you will always feel comfortable in your shoes, as if you were in a heated house.
“We wanted to create a style suited to the contemporary lifestyle. It must be recognized that your SUBÜ will not be suitable for a 15 km hike, but we are convinced that your SUBÜ will be ideal for many occasions in your daily life.
Dunes is proud to be the distributor of SUBÜ for France.
